Who We Are and What We DO

  • Founded in 1989
  • An affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, an ecumenical Christian housing ministry
  • A non-profit organization offering a hand up, not a hand out
  • Home ownership created with 28 working-poor families throughout Chautauqua County
  • A 100% volunteer organization

Volunteers can make a difference! Individuals and groups are invited to donate their time and talents.

Homeowner Families, also known as family partners, are selected after an application process based on their need for decent housing, ability to pay a no-interest mortgage and their willingness to partner with Habitat volunteers to work hundreds of hours, contributing “sweat equity” on a Habitat house.
